Littoral undersea warfare in 2025
MetadataShow full item record
The US Navy is unlikely to encounter a sea-borne peer competitor in the next twenty years. However, some regional powers will seek to develop submarine forces which could pose a significant threat in littoral waters. In this context, the Littoral Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) in 2025 Project applied Systems Engineering principles and processes to create a number of competing ASW force architectures capable of neutralizing the enemy submarine threat. Forces composed of distributed unmanned systems and projected conventional ASW force systems were modeled and analyzed. Results provided insight to ASW challenges and suggested continued efforts that are required to further define and integrate the contribution of evolving technologies into the complex undersea battlespace.
